Benefits of upgrading your Fuse board?
The fuse board, also known as a consumer unit, is the safety net for all of your electronic devices. It acts as a fail safe for faulty appliances or electrical surges. Fuse boards are designed to shut off at the first sign of danger to prevent fires and system overloads as well as preventing damage to your appliances.
Decrease the risk of fires and shocks cause by faulty electronics
Fires and shocks caused by electronic components are an unfortunately frequent occurrence and the best fail safe for these fires is a functioning fuse board that is fitted with a Residual Current Device (RCD) and other fail safes. An RCD will automatically switch off your electricity if a fuse in your home were to blow. Newer fuse board are guaranteed to contain an RCD as well as other safety compliments designed to prevent fires and electric shocks.
